You would not want to admit to a false statement just to drop charges. The prosecutor could charge you with perjury which in Maine is a class C crime. Whether they would or not is another matter, but it's not worth the risk of state jail time.
You should let the prosecutor know that you never pressed these charges in the first place and are not interested in prosecuting your boyfriend now either and that you want these charges dropped. Like expert above told you, the prosecutor does not have to listen to you and the more serious the charges, the less likely. But the fact is that if you keep insisting you don't want to cooperate, going forward with a reluctant complainant doesn't give the prosecution a very strong case, and sooner or later, you may get what you want.
Meanwhile, if you haven't already done so, you can contact your boyfriend's attorney and tell him/her you are not interested in going forward and enlist his help in convincing the DA to drop charges. DAs tell their complanainants not to talk to the defense, because if you want the case prosecuted you are hurting your case by speaking to the defense and providing them with information the DA may not want them to have until trial
. BUT if you don't
want to prosecute,. there's nothing illegal or improper about contacting the other side. It's been my experience in such matters that defense lawyers will be very happy to help you, as it also helps their client. Sometimes that extra push is all that's needed.
